Chongsheng Three Pagodas, Dali

4.0
#2 of 10 in Historic Sites in Dali
Built over a thousand years ago, Chongsheng Three Pagodas allegedly helped scare off the area's pesky dragons. The surrounding area is well maintained, with lots of greenery and a pond reflecting an image of the pagodas and providing an ideal photo op. There are quite a few steep steps to climb here, so wear comfortable shoes and bring plenty of drinking water.

  • High admission fee. Why had the discount 99 Yuan, but is worth it or not. Some postcard topics to view spots but too much time tsubusemasenn

  • The temple is quite big and a long walk up the hill. Well preserved and full of details. We would have regretted not to come.  more »
  • An enormous area on which there are several temples, pavilions and pagodas, hence its name. We take a shuttle that takes us above the area, about two kilometers from the entrance. Recent Temple, built in 2005 in us, yet full of charm as follows in all respects the oldest ones. The diver returns to walk down stairs and alleys, crossing other temples and pavilions. About two-thirds of the way you will encounter the three pagodas, the imposing central square and the two lateral ones, smaller, octagonal. There is a pleasant walk among green lawns and paved boulevards. Well worth a visit.

Where to stay in Dali

A popular tourist destination for budget travelers, Dali offers a wide choice of places to stay. Hotels cluster on the southern and southeastern lakeshore, with luxurious five-star establishments closer to the Three Pagoda area. As an attractive spot for young travelers, Dali offers a range of cheap hostels and scores of guesthouses across the city. Most budget establishments sit just outside the west gate of the old town, or closer to the east gate. However, popular places fill up quickly during the summer period, so make sure you reserve your room in advance.
